I always enjoy a visit to Hartford's art museum.

A man strode through the center of a European gallery.
This west entrance to Morgan Great Hall mixes classical statues, beaux arts decoration and a hint of the huge and colorful mural by the famous Hartford-born conceptualist artist Sol Lewitt.
A docent led a tour in an American gallery featuring paintings by Hudson River School artists.
The Matrix gallery in the museum features contemporary works, usually challenging. The current exhibition by Bouke de Vries, a ceramics conservator and contemporary artist, is War and Pieces.
A long table is set formally in the style of the 17th and 18th century, but with
period ceramic groupings with modern adaptations and broken shards.
